The Trippe Gallery will be hosting a book signing of “Tradition, Speed and Grace: Chesapeake Bay Sailing Log Canoes” by the author John C. North II from 5-7 pm on Friday December 7. “North’s log canoe sailing experience exemplifies two major themes of this unique fleet:tradition and innovation” writes Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Chief Curator Pete Lesher in the book’s Foreword. The book relates the wonderful history of this sailing vessel and is illustrated by photographs new and old, and paintings by Marc Castelli. It belongs in the library of every Eastern Shore resident!
For the month of December, the gallery’s featured exhibit is “Small Jewels for the Holidays”- small paintings, photographs, table sculpture, books and calendars to gift for that special someone on your list!
